[PICS] Purifoy's Custom Corvette Grand Sport

I was perusing the web late last week when I came upon this beautifully customized Corvette Grand Sport from The Corvette Guys at Purifoy Chevrolet in Fort Lupton, Colorado. Each year, Purifoy takes 3 or 4 Corvettes out of their general dealer stock and transforms them into unique, custom creations. This 2012 Grand Sport was dressed up and put on display at the Greybeard Creme de la Chrome car show at the Denver Convention Center.

The Eldorette: a $200,000 Eye-Searing Testament to Hideous Crap

Article contributed by John Coyle / Corvette Forum

First, the good news: there’s apparently only one of these monstrosities. The bad news is everything else. The Eldorette is a combination of C3 Corvette and Cadillac Eldorado, and perfectly illustrates that some things – handguns and tequila, for example – just shouldn’t be put together. The seller claims over $200K was dumped into the construction, which is as crazy as it is sad.

Keeping it Clean: SS Vette's Wicked Widebody

When it comes to the Corvette, custom looks can range from subtly menacing to downright gaudy. Fortunately companies like SS Vette fall firmly in the former category. As a result, even in this topsy-turvy economy, the company remains strong with an ever-expanding catalog of Vette parts and a presence at this year’s SEMA show.

The Scaglietti Bodied Corvettes

A couple weeks back we received the regular Insider’s newsletter from Corvette Market magazine. Included in the email was a link to a video clip of one of the 3 Scaglietti bodied C1 Corvettes assembled in Italy. Having never heard of this trio before we did some Googling to find out more about them. Turns out these three cars were the brainchild of three men from Texas, including one named Carroll Shelby.

1981 Corvette Gets Custom iPad Install

There are some people who have been blessed with the do-it-yourself gene and then there’s Corvette Forum member “Mewn” who has taken the art of custom fabrication to a new level. Mewn’s 1981 Corvette was already a head turner with its huge high-rise 505 big block sticking out of the custom hood. Mewn had been working on the interior and already had installed a custom stereo controlled by a touch screen DVD player, but that quite wasn’t good enough and so he decided to install an Apple iPad2 instead.

Bunkie Knudsen’s 1964 Corvette to be Displayed at SEMA

A custom 1964 style Corvette that was once owned by Chevrolet General Manager Semon E. “Bunkie” Knudsen will be on display at Mid America Motorwork’s SEMA booth in Las Vegas next month. The Corvette will be the centerpiece display by the Corvette catalog company and will showcase MA Motorwork’s Performance Choice interior products.

Corvettes on Craiglist: Vette Testarossa!

Vette Testarossa – $16500 (las vegas)

Found that headline while browsing Craigslist this week and for some reason, I got a kick that out of all places, the car is in Vegas. Now its got to stay there, right? Our black faux-testarossa sits on a 1984 Corvette chassis and the merged kit car looks to be well executed, down to the prancing horse logo on the rear. If you’ve got $16,500 or a 2000 or newer limousine to trade, the Vette Testarossa could be yours!

West Coast Customs' VETT.I.AM Custom Corvette Project

West Coast Customs kicked off season two of their show on the new Velocity network with a project built around a custom 1958 Corvette for the Black Eye Peas’ Will.I.Am. If you missed it, you’re not alone, but the good news is that after consulting my TV guide, it looks like the final episode of this project will be shown on Sunday at 8:00 pm EST. You’ll want to set your DVRs now because this looks like a really cool project.
